Baking · Cupcakes


Cupcakes, buns, fairy cakes, whatever you prefer to call them, are a favourite in our house. Some like them plain, some like them with butter cream, others as delicate Butterfly Cakes, but this time I decided to smother them in chocolate.
I use the same recipe my Mam used & my children love to help bake these, as I did with her.

125g Softened Butter
125g Caster Sugar
2 Eggs
125g Self Raising Flour
2 Tbsp Milk

* Preheat oven to 190 C/GM5. Line a 12 cup muffin or bun tin with muffin or bun cases. I like to use the muffin tin & cases.
*Beat the butter & sugar until light & fluffy.
*Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
*Sieve the flour into the bowl & carefully fold in using a tablespoon.
* Mix in the milk, stir until the mixture is smooth & drops off the spoon easily.
*Divide between the paper cases & bake in the oven until the cakes are risen & golden brown.
*Remove & cool on a cooling rack.
